• did you know?
While fighting for the US during WWII,
Joe Medicine Crow became the last war
chief of the Crow tribe by completing
the 4 required tasks: touch an enemy
without killing him, take an enemy's
weapon, lead a successful war party,
and steal an enemy's horse. Whenever
he went to battle, he wore his war paint
under his Army uniform and a sacred
eagle feather under his helmet.

    • Yeah I watched something on him, the taking the weapon happened when he disarmed a German solider and started to fight him with his bare hands. He started to strangle him but when he called out for his mom he stopped and let the solider go

    • I met a Native American the other day who was 107, and fought in WW2 in the Pacific theater. Now he's a farmer, and he was very proud that he still shows up to work 6 days a week, and still fixes all of his own equipment. I can't even imagine how fascinating his life story is
